Nilla Wafer Thanksgiving Turkeys are cookies sandwiched together with peanut butter, dipped in chocolate, and decorated with fall colored M&Ms, candy corn, and candy eyes, all on a popsicle stick! So fun for the kids and festive for the Thanksgiving table!

creamy peanut butter
chocolate chips or chocolate melting wafers
fall colored M&Ms
Line a baking sheet with wax paper and lay out all your supplies.
Spread about 1 teaspoon of peanut butter onto the back of one Nilla wafer.
Lay a popsicle stick into the peanut butter then add a small amount of peanut butter onto the stick (for "glue").
Sandwich another Nilla wafer on top.
Repeat for as many turkeys as you want to make.
Place into the fridge or freezer for a bit so they firm up.
In a microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chips or chocolate melting wafers and heat for 1 minute, stir, then microwave another 30 seconds, repeating as necessary until fully melted. Let cool slightly - it'll be easier to work with.
Use a spatula to spread a tiny bit of chocolate onto the wax paper to make "feet" for your turkey (if you want them to stand up).
Spread chocolate onto the front of one of the Nilla wafers (to make the face).
Add the M&Ms (feathers), eyes, and candy corn (beak). Then stand it onto the pre-made base/feet.
